About Me (hide/show)
2nd year M.S. student studying Statistics at University of Washington. Graduated from University of California, Berkeley with a Bachelor of Arts in Computer Science.
Currently doing research related to Computational Health/Biology as a part of Professor Su-In Lee's Lab. I'm interested in machine learning as well as probabilistic modelling for high-impact societal applications.
Curriculum Vitae: Link.
Hobbies: I used to breakdance and hope to get back into it. I like video games, reading, and love listening to music.
